explained in the FAQ.


Of course.


As far as I could make out, there are at least two authors for the user-written commands I cited. Ben Jann is the author of -estout- and the related -esttab- and -estpost- while Ian Watson is the author of -tabout-. Below I provide a summary of the information I could gather, in no particular order.




-tabout-

Author: Ian Watson

Brief description:

tabout is a table building program for oneway and twoway tables of frequencies and percentages, and for summary tables.

-estout-

Author: Ben Jann

Brief description:

-esttab-

-estpost-

Author: Ben Jann

Brief description:

esttab and estout tabulate the e()-returns of a command, but not all commands return their results in e(). estpost is a tool make results from some of the most popular of these non-"e-class" commands available for tabulation. It collects results and posts them in an appropriate form in e().

Quoting from Ben Jann:

"estout owes much to John Luke Gallup's outreg and official Stata's estimates. Furthermore, the idea to provide the adaptive display format was motivated by Roy Wada's outreg2."
